It was all good about a week ago, and now Bobby Shmurda's legal issues have been made public.

Shmurda has a felony charge hanging over his head that could land him in jail for more than a decade, TMZ reports. The "Hot N----" rapper was arrested in Brooklyn on June 3, according to documents obtained by the website.

The 20-year-old was reportedly flaunting a 9mm Glock inside an apartment complex. When police came to investigate, he hid the pistol, which was later recovered inside a sofa. Authorities also found 14 rounds of ammunition, and charged Shmurda with felony possession of a weapon. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 15 years.
